After missing a couple of starts, Tigers right-hander Anibal Sanchez has been put on the 15-day disabled list. Catcher Alex Avila was also put on the DL after being hit by a pitch in the ninth inning of their match-up against the Minnesota Twins. Avila is hitting .172 with 5 homers and 13 RBIs.
Sanchez, who is 6-5 with a 2.76 ERA, has a strained right shoulder. Which, consequently, forced him to miss a start earlier this month.
The Tigers are expected to recall left-hander Jose Alvarez from Toledo before their Thursday match-up against the Boston Red Sox. Also, Avisail Garcia and Bryan Holaday were recalled from Toledo to take their roster spots.
